Summary
  • "How to make your house a home filled with comfort, ambience, informality, personality, and a welcoming spirit-- while living beautifully with all the things you love"--P. [4] of cover
  • For all those who choose to live with the messy things they love, this book shows how to do so creatively, happily, and with considerable style ideas. If you have been influenced by the art- and book-filled house of Vanessa Bell, this unique style book will stimulate you with its creative ideas. This volume explores how real-life tastemakers (photographers, textile designers, fashion designers, writers, artists) integrate their life and interiors to live well with their passions, histories, conveniences, and inconveniences. Combining practical tips with liberating philosophy: "Don't scrub the soul out of your home"; "Make room for what you love" this volume celebrates living beautifully and happily, not messily. Lavishly illustrated with intimate photographs
